Latest fearsome news making the rounds: Android malware by name of PlaceRaider, which runs quietly in the background taking pictures at random and transmitting the picture along with location and orientation data!
So, were it to infest my camera, it would get basically three kinds of pictures:
- The inside of my shirt pocket
- My left forefinger
- The shelf where I keep it at night while it charges
If I had a newer model with a front-facing camera, it could transmit even more damaging images:
- An index card
- My left ear
- My face
- The underside of a shelf
And I'll have you know I don't share images of my left ear with just anyone!
